Shamrocks and Screams: LEPRECHAUN Films Now on Hulu

This year, horror fans around the world are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of the cult classic horror film, “Leprechaun.” The good news for fans and newcomers alike is that the entire collection of Leprechaun films will be making its way to Hulu for your viewing pleasure. This exciting development means that there’s no better time to embark on a full-fledged Leprechaun movie marathon. Set your calendars for October 1st, the day when the magic begins!

The original “Leprechaun” film, a fan favorite, is a horror-comedy masterpiece directed by Mark Jones. Starring Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis, this 1993 classic lays the foundation for the entire franchise. The story is a wicked blend of humor and horror, revolving around a malevolent leprechaun’s quest to reclaim his stolen pot of gold. This leprechaun, who’s been confined to a crate for a decade by the cunning Dan O’Grady, is accidentally set free by Tory and her new friends in North Dakota. From that point forward, the malevolent leprechaun unleashes his magical powers and murderous intent, leaving a trail of chaos in his pursuit of every last coin from his pot of gold.

The film not only introduced the world to the mischievous leprechaun but also marked the beginning of a franchise that has since expanded with several sequels, each bringing its own unique twist to the tale of this malevolent creature.

Here’s the full lineup of films in the Leprechaun series:

  1. “Leprechaun” (1993)
  2. “Leprechaun 2” (1994)
  3. “Leprechaun 3” (1995)
  4. “Leprechaun 4: In Space” (1997)
  5. “Leprechaun in the Hood” (2000)
  6. “Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood” (2003)
  7. “Leprechaun: Origins” (2014)
  8. “Leprechaun Returns” (2018)

For fans of the series, this Hulu release is a chance to revisit old favorites and discover some of the later installments that may have been missed.

Additionally, it was announced earlier this year that the Leprechaun series would receive a reboot. Erin Westerman, president of production for Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, expressed excitement about the franchise’s enduring appeal. The reboot is expected to bring fresh scares and entertainment to both long-time fans and a new generation of horror enthusiasts.
